    First developed in the 1860’s, the waterworks reservoir captures the flow of creeks and rivers rising on the higher slopes of Mt Wellington. Flowing via a network of stone and timber troughs and channels, the gathered waters arrived at the receiving house, where today, an informative display explains the curious history of this important and historic site.

    There a number of different sites available. Tree shaded lawns and childrens’ play areas of the waterworks are popular for picnics and barbeques and also provide the perfect backdrop for light installations, creative community events, poetry readings, photography, musical performances, painting and drawing workshops and site specific theatrical performances.
